[Influence of application-impulse stimulation treatment on airway's reactivity with asthma]
Changzhou Asthma and Bronchitis Research Institute.
The authors observed the effect of application-impulse stimulation treatment on 184 patients with asthma, using the main index of airway's reactivity, in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel study. The airway's reactivity of the treated group got improved significantly (P less than 0.001), but that of the control group was not changed sharply (P greater than 0.05). The airway's reactivity and clinical effect between the groups have significant meaning (P less than 0.001, P less than 0.001). The result suggests that application-impulse stimulation treatment is a safe and effective method for preventing and treating asthma.
